Our October meeting at Sonya Light’s home was the official end of our Summer Scherzos for the 2015 season.
In November we will split up again into our four individual groups: The Glissandos, The Legatos, The Vivaces, and the Crescendos.
We had a nice gathering of pianists who presented some interesting and not so often heard pieces. We also learned that John Field (1782-1837) introduced the term Nocturne for select piano pieces and not Chopin as I always had assumed. Our Lone Ranger in the instrument section was Edward Brennan who played one of Mahler’s beautiful songs on the viola.
Till we meet again, I remain yours sincerely,
